Open Studio for Data Quality

In the open analysis editor, you can add a task to the indicators set on columns. This task can be used, for example, as a reminder to modify the indicator or to flag a problem that needs to be solved later.

Before you begin

  • A column analysis is open in the analysis editor in the Profiling perspective of Talend Studio.
  • At least one indicator is set for the columns to be analyzed.


  1. In the Analyzed Columns list, right-click the indicator name and select Add task... from the contextual menu.
    The Properties dialog box opens showing the metadata of the selected indicator.
  2. In the Description field, enter a short description for the task you want to attach to the selected indicator.
  3. On the Priority list, select the priority level and then click OK to close the dialog box. The created task is added to the Tasks list.
    For more information on how to access the task list, see Displaying the task list.
